New Chorus of Women’s Voices Engages the Bible Critically
MINNEAPOLIS (September 18, 2006)— The newly released Engaging the Bible: Critical Readings from Contemporary Women brings together some of the leading luminaries in feminist, womanist, and multicultural critical biblical studies.
In this book edited by Choi Hee An and Katheryn Pfisterer Darr, each woman describes her unique perspective and offers her reading of a particular biblical scene. This is an ideal text for courses on feminist and multicultural biblical interpretation. It includes discussion questions for each chapter and a list of suggested readings.
